Detailed Product Description

Connecticut, 1994, 1st edition, 3rd printing. 133 pp, b/w photos and illustrations. New paperback.

Two masters of climbing technique describe the complicated subject of climbing big walls. Covers aid, free techniques, hauling, training, gear, everything else. 

The most complete book on big wall techniques available.

From the How to Climb Series, Big Walls is the most comprehensive book available on the subject of big wall climbing. It was written by authors with over 50 years of climbing experience. John Long was one of the pioneers of big wall climbing in the 1970s and John Middendorf is one of world's most experienced big wall climbers, with over 100 big wall climbs to his credit, and an engineer with an interest in documenting tools and techniques to boot. The text is largely a summary of a lifelong collection of notes and experiences, edited into a very readable book that really gives the reader the best overview of one of the most exciting specializations of mountaineering.
